‘Pokemon Tretta’ Trademark Surfaces, Scratching Of Heads Ensues
Another new Pokemon trademark! Who or what does this mean? Thinking caps at the ready!
Nintendo fans can’t move for Pokemon news these days, from unlikely yet intriguing crossovers to the upcoming Black & White 2 sequels.
But there’s more on the way, it seems, with the mysterious discovery of a new trademarked title, this being Pokemon Tretta.
Siliconera have brought to light this most noggin-scratch-inspiring development from the All About Pokmon Figure blog. Alongside the trademarks for Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2, the hitherto-unknown Pokemon Tretta has emerged.
As you’ll no doubt see, the writing style of the curious new logo is a new twist on the usual Pokemon style. Not just this, but the series symbol, the iconic Pokeball, is shooting stars all magical-like.
Speculation is, of course, rife at this development. The Pokemon Figure blog ponders the possibilities of ‘Tretta’ referring to bikes (hey, we’ve seen weirder… honestly, who saw Pokemon in feudal Japan coming?).
Meanwhile, Siliconera’s own comment sections have gamers puzzled also. Suggestions are coming in that this could be a Tetris Attack or other sort of puzzle-based game.
Heck, maybe both are right and it’s a game about matching coloured bicycles. Um, with Pokemon riding them. Or something. Okay, maybe not.
Either way, with no release date, no further clues and not even a format set (so effectively we don’t even know if it’s for 3DS), the ball really is in the air for this one. Or the Pokeball is in the air, shall we say.
Whatever the outcome, rest assured we’ve got our eyes on things. Pokemon continues to be a compelling, broadly appealing brand ever since it burst onto the scene in the late 1990s. After all this time, it still only takes as little as a filed trademark to stir up a frenzy of curiosity about the franchise’s next direction.
So, Pokefans, what’s your verdict? What do you think the mysterious Pokemon Tretta is all about?
